From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille comes a suspenseful new novel featuring Detective John Corey and an all-too-plausible conspiracy to detonate a nuclear bomb in two major American cities. Welcome to the Custer Hill Club--an informal men's club set in a luxurious Adirondack hunting lodge whose members include some of America's most powerful business leaders, military men, and government officials. Ostensibly, the club is a place to gather with old friends, hunt, eat, drink, and talk off-the-record about war, life, death, sex and politics. But one Fall weekend, the Executive Board of the Custer Hill Club gathers to talk about the tragedy of 9/11 and what America must do to retaliate. Their plan is finalized and set into motion. That same weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is reported missing. His body is soon discovered in the woods near the Custer Hill Club's game reserve. The death appears to be a hunting accident, and that's how the local police first report it, but Detective John Corey has his doubts. As he digs deeper, he begins to unravel a plot involving the Custer Hill Club, a top-secret plan known only by its code name: Wild Fire. Racing against the clock, Detective Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, find they are the only people in a position to stop the button from being pushed and chaos from being unleashed.

Would I be giving away the ending if I was reviewing a James Bond book and I told you that Bond stops the bad guy before his evil plan was complete? If you answer yes to that question -- if you believe that would spoil the suspense -- then stop reading this review, because I'm about to do something ...

Love it: a thriller with sardonic narrative and a smart-mouthed hero, which made the book more enjoyable. Within the first few pages, DeMille amused me with this gem, which is one of my pet peeves: “Now, everyone talks about killing Islamic fundamentalists and winning the war on terror—grammatical c...

This was a fun read. Corey is very funny!I really liked (5-stars) to the beginning of this book, and I really liked the ending too, but I must admit I got pretty bored through the middle sections.Only Corey's gallows-humor kept me from skipping ahead.

Най- накрая я прочетох ;д.Книгата ми хареса, показва параноята свързана с тероризма в САЩ, както и промените, които са настъпили след 11 септември. Героят, който ми хареса най- много е Джон Кори от ФБР, с неговия хумор, способен да вбеси всеки един човек ;д Авторът Нелсън Демил пише много добре, опи...
